I really enjoyed the fact that most of the story takes place in and around the Greater Dallas Metroplex, since I am familiar with the area. I often found my attention wandering and I would have liked there to have been more action throughout. The author did not stint on describing the thoughts, concerns and worries of the important characters, but I feel the redundancy became excessive and because of that, the pacing suffers. The characters are intriguing, and the important ones are especially well-fleshed. My feeling is that Ms. Green’s intent was to add realism by allowing the characters to give voice, both verbally and mentally, to the fears and insecurities that any of us would feel in a similar situation. However, in my fantasies, I have to say that I prefer the main character, especially, to be less of a whiner. The plot and the mystery element are both thin. All in all, for me, this was an Ok read. I would have preferred a tighter overall structure, though I do think the conversations between the characters were written well and seemed natural.
